When you purchase RADEX RD1212, it comes with a radiation detector, USB cable, 2 batteries and a RADEX RD1212 owner’s CD. Everything required is included thus you just need to put in the batteries and the radiation detector can start provide reading immediately.

When holding on the RADEX RD1212 Geiger counter, it feels actually quite small, solid and rugged. Upon testing, we notice that it is very easy to read as it has a large screen. In fact, between 10 seconds we can get the radiation reading. There is a graphic at the side of the RADEX RD1212 screen showing all measurements had completed successfully. There is also a built-in flashlight to ensure easier reading in low light environment.

If you are not familiar with the usage of RADEX RD1212, there is an illustrated quick start guide in the owner’s CD. Just follow the instructions and you should be able to get the device up and running in minutes.

RADEX RD1212 Radiation Detector or Geiger Counter

RADEX RD1212 ReviewOne of the functions of RADEX RD1212 is to allow measurement results storage in the device’s memory. On the other hand, you can indeed download or transfer all readings to your PC. This is helpful in case you want to keep the radiation reading for a certain period of time.

However we have a negative complaint on the RADEX RD1212 Geiger counter. The software provided in the owner’s CD only support Windows operating system. If you are using a Mac you need to get a VMS (virtual memory system) in order to have the software run on your Mac. We think RADEX should provide a Mac version of the software in the future release.

Finally, our overall comment about the RADEX RD1212 is impressive, smart and easy to use radiation detector. It is full of advance and revolutionary features. To read more reviews and capabilities of RADEX RD1212, CLICK HERE.
